UAE National Figure Skating Champion Zahra Lari and Emirates Skating Club will host the Skate Emirates ISIA Figure Skating Competition on 29 - 30 April at Zayed Sports City Ice Rink.

Expected to compete are 120 skaters from across the UAE, Qatar and China. Skaters will showcase their routines in six categories: Beginner, Technical, Artistic, Spotlight, Footwork, and Interpretive. Independent, highly qualified judges will be flown in from from Hong Kong, China and the USA, making the competition especially attractive.

“I’m excited to help host this event,” says Zahra. “It is a great opportunity to encourage the future growth and development of figure skating in the GCC.” Zahra’s membership with ISU precludes her from competing in this event, but will skate an exhibition programme and is excited to be a spectator. 

The event will take place Friday 29 April from noon until 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 30 April from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The public can watch these talented skaters of all ages for free. Come with the whole family - don’t forget your sweater! More information is found on the Facebook event page.
